John Kennedy Toole's first novel. No where near a prequel to the Pulitzer Prize winning A Confederacy of Dunces, this is still a major literary work (IMHO). The story was written when the author was still a teenager and has a teenage John Kennedy Toole's perspective. After the success of Confederacy, Thelma Ducoing Toole found John's first manuscript and despite family quarrels, had it published.
Googling The Neon Bible will unfortunately only lead you to movie reviews (Denis Leary was perfect as Frank).
